morris and karl rove thinking they were going to win. even mitt romney didn't even have a concession speech written up. they were so convinced they were going to win. by the way, i saw on the news last night sheldon adelson, the guy with the casinos in las vegas he is starting all over again. he said i will spend $100 million against labor because they realize and these guys all talk together the karl roves, the norquists. >> the koch brothers. >> these people all talk to each other and figure out, how are we going to take over? and what the hell went wrong? they were so convinced that they had the money, that they could win this race now they think we have to go after labor because they are the problem. >> that's why we lost ohio that's why we lost michigan. >> i want to make sure president hoffa that our listeners and viewers understand exactly for working families what right to the work legislation means. because, you know, they do this all the time. they give these fancy positive sounding words. >> we call it right to work for less. >> that's what the
, indeed. one story people are talking about, he's back. he's back. we reported that karl rove and dick morris had been benched at fox news. >> bill: that didn't take long, did it? >> yesterday karl rove turned up again on special report with bret baier. so all of these reports about him being benched may or may not be true. >> bill: what was it? a week? yeah maybe. >> wasn't that long. >> bill: i guess dick morris will be back on sean hannity tonight. >> god help us if he does show back up but yeah. clearly taking them off the bench. >> bill: as long as you're willing to bash barack obama you'll have a home on fox. no doubt about it. so amanda, this is -- this is not going to end. even if rick schneider signs this bill today. >> no. >> bill: this is going to be an on-going battle. >> it will keep going. you will see attempts to repeal the bill. whether passing new legislation attempts perhaps to recall the legislators who voted for it. there will be the elections in 2014. i think it has woken labo
it to lobby and we're talking about one that's affiliated with conservative karl rove and a super pac american crossroads, remember that? so get ready for some more campaigning because they are back. >> we're serious about reducing the deficit. >> we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. >> but so far, a huge tax increase is his solution. >>> reporter: it may feel like the election season never ended. >> the time for politics has ended. >> reporter: and apparently, it hasn't because the "fiscal cliff" fight is now fodder for political commercials known as issue ads. this one is running on cable news networks by a conservative nonprofit called crossroads. >> call president obama and tell him, it's time to show us a balanced plan. >> reporter: it is a big switch from presidential politics to full-scale lobbying. >> on the one hand it's very bizarre coming down the pike right now. on the other hand this is the nature of the finance structure we have created. >> reporter: the president is still in campaign mode. he is not looking for votes. he is looking for public support in handling the "f
jumeau, before you were the roving ambassador for the seychelles, you were a u.n. ambassador. the u.s. has a major drone bass in the seychelles, which means you have close ties to the military. does that affect your negotiations here? >> not at all. first and foremost, we are a small island country, a member of the alliance of small island states. we are also part of the african union, but we always take the same position as the islands, because the islands have to stay together. ironically, the u.s. drones in seychelles take off from an airport only 10 feet above sea level. that should give them an idea of the kind of threat we are facing. when a tsunami hit the seychelles, it covered part of the airport, so by being in the seychelles, they cannot say they do not understand our position because they're very drones take off from the airport. we will also not allow our relationship with the u.s. to affect our tough stance here. we will continue to call for urgent and deep cuts in emissions, not just to save the seychelles. if the seychelles go under, so does new york, so does the nil

a report at each of his stops. another obligation was to -- the public which made him into a roving commercial advertisement particulaparticula rly for canadian pacific railway. a book appeared in the following year. it's hard to tell how much of it is his own prose. his comment on meeting the press in london says ,-com,-com ma reporters were awfully witty and had a lot of fun together. hence the newsroom pros back in copenhagen had given the stories final shape. but for the 44 days he went around the world, holt was the star of the show. the premise of the journey was that of circumnavigation was the ultimate boy's adventure of good but not dangerous attempt. the emphasis is reinforced by the introduction of english transition which was written by a grown-up, stating around the world everyone of us has made the voyage many times in our imagination. the introduction made at this point typical magellan is a great pioneer of the whole thing, but then fast-forwarded. whose posthumous reputation was beginning its descent to that of children's author. the stories were challenging yet fac
would have never allowed that to happen. >> no way. >> would karl rove have allowed that to happen? would you have allowed that to happen. >> come on, dan bartlett. >> man up! >> this is a little off topic but on topic, i don't understand what's wrong with our country and ford. i love ford. i have an f-150. i love that ford. huge pickup, guzzles gas, but buyers are falling in love, rattner. it's the raptor 411 horsepower v8 riding atop big wheel oversized tires. it's making new fans for its performance in ice, snow, rocky hill tops and roaring over desert dunes. we have a lot of those in america. apparently it's selling off the shelves. it's $44,000 starting price, double the f-150. the gas mileage is awful. it's awful. >> what is it? >> 11 miles per gallon in the city. what's wrong with people? what's wrong with companies? i don't get it. this is 1978. >> we were driviere driving aroy on the turnpike. >> the stupidist thing i've seen. >> actually pickups are not selling well. >> apparently that is. >> this one is selling well. >> why are they even making it, steve? >> it's america
about cutting spending before coming to us for more money. gregg: you know what, doug? karl rove wrote an op-ed in "the wall street journal" which he basically says, the president think it is all about him. the more mr. obama makes everything about him, the more stubborn he is likely to be when flexibility would be better. success requires adjustments, including a greater willingness to compromise and seek common ground with his opposition. fair point? >> oh, i think it is a fair point. i think it is a fair point on both sides. we had a framework that did what terry described. it was called bowles-simpson. the president didn't support it. paul ryan didn't support it. it didn't have the kind of bipartisan consensus we needed. gotten us $4 in spending cuts for one dollar in revenue increase. bottom line we lack common purpose as a nation. both parties i believe are to be blamed. gregg, as we go to the end of the year and the christmas season i would hope we would have a common purpose, put partisanship aside and say how do we put the nation first? sadly, no one is doing that. gregg: it i
politically. and apparently, obama doesn't want to do that. >> host: you write, if karl rove was george w. bush's brain, then david axlerod is the barack obama's homer. >> guest: his what? >> host: homer. >> guest: that's a pretty good line i wrote there. [laughter] well, he is his homer. >> host: what do you mean by that? >> guest: what i mean is david axlerod is a brilliant creator of personal stories for politicians. so when barack obama ran in twaipt, -- in twaipt, he didn't have a record to run on, because he hadn't done anything. what he did have to run on was his personal story. the son of an african, black african and a white middle-american mother. a man who sought his identity and found it, who have raised by his, these saintly grandparents and so forth and so on. this was a story, a homerric story, if you will, because homer was with known for talking about taking a trip and coming to some understanding of one's self. this was the story that david axlerod fashioned for obama to run on, a brilliant story. the problem is, in 2012 there is no such story. we've seen that story, we
. apparently obama doesn't want to do that. see you right, if karl rove was george w. bush's brain, then david axelrod is barack obama's home or. >> his what? >> his home or. >> that's a pretty good line that i wrote there. he is a pretty good homer. >> what do you mean by that? >> what i mean by that is david axelrod is a really and creator of personal stories for politicians. so when barack obama ran in 2008, he didn't have a record to run on because he hadn't done anything. what he did have to run on was his personal story. the son of an african, a black african and a white middle american mother, a man who saw his identity and founded, who was raised by his saintly grandparents and so forth and so on. this was a story, an american story if you will, he could as homer was known for talking about taking a trip and during the trip, coming to some inner understanding of oneself. this was the story that david axelrod fashion for obama to run on. it's a brilliant story. the problem is in 2012 there is no such story. we have seen that story. we know that story. that's old. he can't run on that st
by norquist. norquist far more powerful than karl rove and fox news. >> you do believe that? >> much more. he could destroy any republican who goes against the pledge. he's really powerful. i have known grover for years. >> even though democrats won the presidential election? doesn't that change the calculus? >> he would say these people are all safe seats if they don't get against the pledge. norquist has the division so to speak. he could destroy any republican who says the word tax increase. has he said -- he said if they're seduced by democrats in pure thoughts this is the so-called i can smell pornography when i see it. this is pornography for grover norquist. he can smell it when he sees it. he will target. he will destroy republicans who go against the pledge. he's much more powerful than any individual republican. and individual ceo. let's just face it. i've always felt he was the most powerful person in the class of '76 at harvard. enjoyed his success because he was a fellow member of the harvard crimson. i just disagree with him. terrific guy. >> with friends like that -- >> with al
